Placing table tents around the Student Centers spaces is a very visual and up-close way to promote your organization! Table tents allow students to learn about an organization or event as they sit at the tables to eat and socialize.

Reserve table tents by emailing Student Centers at with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your organization name
  • The dates you wish to reserve
  • The location(s) you wish to reserve

A table tent is defined as a self-standing promotional material, usually made from folded paper. Any advertising materials placed on tables, including flyers and postcards, are subject to the same reservation policies and procedures for table tents listed below.

Who Can Use Table Tents?

  • All Mason Departments and Registered Student Organizations may reserve table tent space at the Johnson Center or Student Union I after their table tents have been stamped for approval.
